For the October hop, the theme was "All Things Fall." I decided that nothing says "FALL" better in Kansas than a sunflower. Every September they start growing wild along the roads.
This card uses the stamp set "Fall Harvest" on a brown base and the leaf from the PWP Swirly Seasons in Versamark Champagne Dazzle as a background. It's hard to see it, but the flash even caught one particular sparkle just to the right of the image! I also used my handy dandy Scor-Pal and Scor Bug.
After stamping in Burnt Umber Palette, the sunflower was colored with watercolor pencils and a Dove Blender, then cut out with mini Kai scissors (love those things!) and popped up with a pop dot on the main panel. I went along the edged of the cut out flower with a brown marker (discontinued) to get rid of the white edge that I didn't like.
This next card was one I CASEd from Laurie W's card and turned it into a fall one. I used the "thumping" technique with Tombow markers after inking with Landscape Palette. The stamp set for the main image is called "Happy Thoughts," and the other one is "Sending a Latte." The joy of unmounted stamps is that I could cut out the "a latte" and use it for non-coffee cards! :-)
The scalloped paper is from the scalloped stack, inks are Burnt Umber and Cognac (sponged with Hydra Sponge), and base cardstock is Aspen. The orange-y cardstock is from the Cha Cha cardstock collection.
